  1. For the longest time, I thought I had messed this up....but now I have Cura on some other computers and can replicate it. What Happens: If you've been using Octoprint and/or set your machine code to Marlin, when you set it back to Ultimaker 2, it adds an additional bed lowering and raise at the start of a print. When the printer warms up for the start of the print, it will do it's usual bed raise and purge material, but then it lowers again, raises, does a small purge and then begins the print. Perhaps some logic can be added so that this isn't added to the start script?

    Cura 3.6 missing sections in gcode?

    Im going to enable the Octoprint Plugin and try that...do I have a bad SD card? It's got 5 or 6 other prints on it and recently formatted (and new)? I'll let you know! Sooo weird!

    Cura 3.6 missing sections in gcode?

    I just came back to find the print stopped with the nozzle sitting in the print What gives? Why is Cura broken?

    Cura 3.6 missing sections in gcode?

    I just sliced it again and analyzed the gcode before letting the UM2+ try it again It's all there this time. What in the world would cause such a weird fluke?
  5. Last night I loaded up a model to print using the basic settings/Ultimaker PLA profile Woke up this morning to half a print. I thought maybe the filament tangled or jammed. Then I decided to view the gcode in S3D's gcode viewer. A big gap! I'm attaching the gcode and hope someone can tell me what happened? UM2_X_-_Carriage.gcode
  6. Well how crazy is that. By default it isn't set to auto slice. Kind of nice, I suppose...! I hit the Slice Button and now I have it. I'm so used to years of upgrading and having that as a default all along, it's weird on a fresh install, that isn't set to go. Thanks!
  7. I just received a new Lenovo P72 and installed Cura. Quite disappointed how slow Cura runs on a Intel i7 8850 6 core processor with an nVidia Quadro P600 Slow! But my bigger issue, about to do a print and when I go to my layer view to analyze my print...I so no way to slide up and down as I used to, to view the layers

    Tip: Bed adhesion

    George's video is great. I went with the diluted wood glue/dried up on the bed for many months and it worked great. I've gone to AquaNet extra hold hairspray now...it just works so well! Be sure your glass is super clean...Windex, rubbing alcohol...but your first layer looks like the nozzles needs to come down a bit more. Bed temp 60C works perfect too

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    I'm going to leave this thread alone and Agree to Disagree with you, on this topic.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    You, like it or not, are one of many public faces of Ultimaker and whether you consider yourself Customer Support or not, you represent the company. Thus, when you make "snarky" responses, it reflects on your team and company. When you ask the community for feedback on beta versions and respond in this way, then defend it...it's disappointing.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    Well I don't think the average end user needs to know all about the intern stuff or what's involved in fixing it. I was just pointing out that it's not working and would prefer you treat a customer as one. I bought a printer and countless filaments, upgrade components and so on. Your response, intentional or not, comes off as rude. (I think you guys are really loosing touch with your customers. There used to be some respect and simple acknowledgement of an issue. Now you offer a bunch of internal excuses why something won't be resolved.) I guess I'd prefer you just acknowledge the issue and tell us a fix is coming in a future release.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    So we're awaiting an intern to fix this rather obvious issue? Gotcha.

    3.6 Beta - Arrange Models broken

    Correct. I moved them manually and they successfully printed overnight
  14. I went into "Open File", selected two small STLs (bottom and top of a Raspberry Pi case) expecting both to appear on the buildplate One was not on the build plate Right click and Arrange All Models and it still won't place them on the bed I tried again, making sure (Ctrl A) all models selected and "Arrange All Models" Same problem and error I wound up manually placing them on the bed, but wanted you to be aware of the behavior.
